New Gorillaz Album is Finished - Release Date and more!

Damon Albarn recently announced that the new Gorillaz album is finished and that rehearsals are currently underway. The mega-successful cartoon band are currently gearing up to release their first full-length record since 2011’s ‘The Fall’, and last month released the first single – ‘Hallelujah Money’, featuring former Mercury Prize-winner Benjamin Clementine – from the as-yet-untitled album.

No official word has been spread about the possible release date. Jack Winstanley (@_JackWinstanley) posted a series of tweets after meeting the Blur frontman outside the gig venue where he works earlier this week, writing that Albarn had told him that the album is ‘finished’ and that tour preparations are underway.

With this in mind, perhaps a spectulative release date would be sometime within the next 2-3 months- perhaps in May or June. We should be expecting a single to be released earlier so this is great news for fans.

Stay tuned for more news.

Noodle from Gorillaz recently posted a mysterious message on her Instagram profile, alluding to a new Gorillaz track to be released soon.

The Japanese caption, “近日公開,” translates as “Coming soon" in English. This has left fans speculating about what exactly is coming soon. Is it a new Gorillaz song? Or an entirely new iPad album like the previous The Fall?

In June 2016, Damon Albarn announced that a new Gorillaz album was coming "fairly soon". Now that it is already November, it is about right that something should be released soon. The band has been posting a lot of cryptic messages on its Twitter and Instagram feeds lately. This is not surprising, given that Gorillaz is a virtual band marketed solely online.

We would expect that the band's suspense-creating tactic will continue throughout this month, increasing in frequency as more things become unveiled.

New Gorillaz Track to be Released in November 12th 2016

Breaking news for all Gorillaz fan: a new Gorillaz song may be released on November 12th 2016 or December 11th 2016. We put two dates here because we still don't know when there will be a track - if any - that will be released.

The band has been keeping this mysterious with their new Book of Murdoc and strange Instagram posts. For example, creator Jamie Hewlett has been posting clues of a new Gorillaz album in his feed but has been keeping quiet about whether there is a new release soon.

Another development is that Noodle, the guitarist for the virtual band led by Damon Albarn and drawn by Jamie Hewlett, recently ventured out into the world of online dating by setting up a profile on OKCupid. Her profile ( has since been deleted, but according to sources, Noodle’s bio reportedly read “Ready? 12:11 xxDA.”

What does that mean? DA is assumed to be the initials of Damon Albarn, the Blur frontman who founded Gorillaz with cult comic legend Jamie Hewlett, but what the numbers may mean is still unknown and has fans speculating non-stop.

Many have eagerly assumed that 12:11 must be when we can expect a new Gorillaz single or an announcement about the album. But just when we can expect that is anyone’s guess. November 12th? December 11th? At 12:11 at night or in the afternoon?

Meanwhile, Noodle also posted some selfies on her Instagram account and wrote some Japanese writing that also has fans getting exciting. “近日公開,” was the caption, which translates as “Coming soon.”

What is coming soon? A new song? Or another comic book? We do not know, and there is numerous speculation about the possibilities.  Stay tuned to find out.

Murdoc talks Brexit- Gorillaz News

Noisey has shared a new interview with Murdoc, the animated bassist and bandleader behind Gorillaz.
In it, Murdoc (full name Murdoc Niccals) said he "stage-dived into existence" outside a pub in Stoke-on-Trent, UK, where he also performed for the first time. "My old man made me sing in the monthly talent contest to win him beer money. First gig, I was 6 years old. Smashed out 'The Wheels on the Bus.' One of the most seminal gigs in pop history." His first kiss was a "bare-knuckle boxing champion" named Kelly O'Driscoll.

While Murdoc refused to give any new information about the impending fifth album from Gorillaz, he did discuss his opinions on music and modern politics. His favorite living musician — other than himself — is Ringo Starr. "While everyone else was coked out of their minds in the '80s, he did his career's finest work on Thomas the Tank Engine." Murdoc also chooses Oasis as the better band over Blur, the band fronted by Gorillaz co-creator Damon Albarn.
And, of course, Brexit came up. Brexit, the topic which makes short-term lets in London housing prices plummet.  Murdoc spoke regretfully of Britain voting to leave the European Union, citing Lithuania's fast internet speeds as a benefit of staying. As for who should play James Bond in the next film, Murdoc vouches for Noodle, Gorillaz's bassist, because he's "a feminist now."

New Gorillaz Album Could Be Out in 2 weeks

Apologies for the hiatus, but Gorillaz’s newest single could be out by next Saturday night. In Damon Albarn's last interview, he had said the band’s new album could be finished in two weeks. It's almost two weeks later, and that may be the case as the band’s fictional guitarist Noodle has teased new music may be out soon.

As NME points out, the character shared an image on Instagram of the eye insignia for Beats 1 show Soulection, which airs Saturday nights, and tagged regular host Gilles Peterson.

The band also shared a new origin story for band member Murdoch. As with The Book Of Noodle and The Book Of Russel, this one follows the story of the band’s bassist from a rusty submarine to a new apartment in West London.

In their typical creative and mysterious humor, the legendary group has used this storyline to prepare fans for a new album, which is expected to drop sometime in 2017. Until then, you can follow the journey of the greatest cartoon band on Earth. Lead singer 2D is expected to get his own "book" next.
